Does the island have any permanent inhabitants? It looks very 'new' (as in not much vegetation or erosion), when was it formed? A friend at work has visited Tristan Da Cunha which I presume is the nearest neighbour... He said that's a very bizarre island... about 200 inhabitants, no airstrip, and the only 'way out' is by boat to Cape Town.

"the island's lack of vegetation goes to Edmond Halley, more notorious for his comet than for leaving goats behind on Trindade Island. The goats escaped, run wild on the island, and have chomped all the vegetation. There is some left though, including a giant fern forest, with very jurassic proportions."

Thanks for the pictures, Brazil2015. I've always wanted to see good images of the giant fern forests, it looks very interesting. Do you know if the pinetree is native to the island?
